I'm holding out for Jony Ive to join PH as a maker.

This thing is a masterpiece.

@dankaplan agreed. I'm not the sort of person who salivates at the thought of new Apple products... but this is damn good!
@dankaplan Absolutely. Give it one year - everyone else in the industry will introduce features relating to better keyboards and trackpads!
It looks beautiful. I'm not sure how I feel about the lack of USB ports.

@mikebronfman this is where they will up sell you on 19.99$ Apple USB splitters
@mikebronfman @jesse_wallace holy... 80$, they will be basically printing money
As someone who rarely (if ever) uses the USB port and never uses the HDMI port, I think this is a step in the right direction.
Seems like Apple's hardware lineups are getting harder and harder to distinguish. It was already happening with all the SKUs in the iPad and now they are doing it with the laptops. I also reeeeally can't stand that edge to edge keyboard. Yuck.
@jesse_wallace The one that borders the keyboard left and right, I guess? In my opinion that is the weakest part of the design. I preferred the border of the 13" MacBook Air and Pro, which was roughly as wide a standard key, which made it look really balanced. I guess that due to the keys protruding less now it won't be as disturbing in natura.
